Upper Mustang Circuit Trek is one of the most fascinating, exciting treks in all of Nepal due to
its remote location, out of this world landscape, and vibrant culture. This scenic trek offers
diverse landscape from the deepest gorge of Kaligandaki to the high altitude region of
Lomangthang valley full of barren tree-less landscape and rocky trail, surrounded by the
beautiful snow capped peaks of Mt. Niliguri, Mt. Annapurna, and Mt. Dhalaguri. Upper Mustang
trek is another world on its own with very distinctive landscape and culture different from
other regions of Nepal. It is remarkable and arid world where grey-brown treeless rolling hill
extends into the distance and where homes are built from sun baked mud brick, which
remained intact for decades.Upper Mustang trekking is the capital of Upper Mustang known as
Lo Manthang. On the way to Lo Manthang, trekkers can view the breathtaking wall of medieval
capital from far distance. It includes a white-washed, 6m tall wall that was constructed to guard
outsiders from invading.
